While the 18-135 isn't as long as the 50-200 it has the distinct advantage of covering 18 to 135 without the need to swap at 50-55, which can be a real dilemma in inclement weather. Despite that, if one wants the 18-55 plus 50-200 WR K-30 kit it is on sale at Costco right now.
I didn't know anyone was selling a kit with the WR versions of both those lenses, but I would still have gone with the 18-135 because of the coverage, as you say, and because the consensus seems to be that the 18-135 is a higher-quality lens than either of the other two. Also, I wanted just to carry one lens until I know what I'm doing with the camera, but that caveat wouldn't seem to apply to the original poster here.
